Klitschko Feels Fury Would Lose To Joshua

As Tyson Fury looks towards a June 9th return, many are discussing the potential of a fight with Anthony Joshua. One man with first-hand knowledge of both fighters has a prediction.

When asked by the London Times about a potential Joshua-Fury fight, former heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko feels that Fury would have a tough time.

“Hands down, Joshua [wins]. He is getting to be the complete fighter,” Klitschko said in an interview with the Times.

“Technically, size-wise, weight-wise, power-wise. And he is a good learner. The other guy [Fury], like a fart in the wind it is there and it is gone.
“In the history of boxing there are a lot of examples of this kind of guy. They can be successful for a time but are not disciplined enough to continue to be successful.

Klitschko, who fell to Fury in 2015 and Joshua in 2017, feels that Fury’s trouble comes from a lack of discipline.

“I wish Tyson well but I think there is a lack of discipline there, and discipline is more important than motivation. Motivation comes and goes, discipline remains.

“I am not Nostradamus, I can’t predict the future… it is going to be very difficult for Tyson because there’s that lack of discipline.”
